Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] trasmission oil cooler
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The in-line Bowman needs more attention than the cooler attached to the transmission because the openings for the seawater flow in the Bowman are very small. The entry end of the Bowman will trap particles and debris that are small enough to get through the sea-chest strainer. It is very easy to clean the Bowman of this debris. It is also very easy to ruin the Bowman by over-tightening the large hose clamps on the entry and exit rubber boots. This same hose clamp, on the entry end is what is opened to remove debris...there is more to the procedure because of the saltwater in the lines and the Bowman heat exchanger.
